I naturally dyed scarves last week with Cutch and Sandalwood. The colors are dreamy – neutral mocha brown and the palest blush pink. Both Cutch and Sandalwood are trees native to Asia. The dye stuff comes from the heartwood of these trees. I'm really enjoying the process of naturally dyeing fabric. It's slow and satisfying. Planning to do a bit more in the Fall months ahead. In the mean time, these cotton gauze scarves are in my SHOP. They're screen printed in antique gold with my 'Meditation' pattern – a repeating seated Buddha – randomly arranged along the length of the scarf.

I decided to use some of my vintage textiles to make pillow covers. My first collection is made from a French linen sheet dating to the early 1900s and pieces of a Thai batik tribal garment from the 1960s – they were meant to be together.

In my SHOP now.
